Wednesday, March 7, 7:30pm at California Jazz Conservatory
Hailed for its spirited performances and fascinating fusion of Latin and folk rhythms with adventurous jazz explorations, VNote Ensemble gives voice to the hidden treasure of Venezuelan music. The group is committed to raising that voice and exploring the connection between North American jazz and traditional Venezuelan songs. Exquisite arrangements, unique compositions, colors and rhythms blend together to deliver a unique musical profile.The VNote Ensemble defiantly ignores musical boundaries to create a new direction that journeys the infectious rhythms of joropo and swing, gaita and soul, and bebop and calypso among many others. The players are Donna Viscuso, flute; Jackeline Rago, Venezuelan cuatro & bandola; Michaelle Goerlitz, percussion; and Dan Feiszli, bass.
